#1..Again

Whew...can I come to the game in my blue pajamas?

but only in the AP poll.

Dang it, FSJ! Can you at least give it a minute between posts?

How about a blue Snuggy? Have you bought a houndstooth one yet?

12:01 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

Another morning game but that probably won't make any difference if they don't get there heads in the game.
Hope they get it straightened out.

12:02 PM

LOL Scott...no houndstooth Snuggy...

I never thought I'd say this, but King Dunlap played in an NFL game yesterday. The Eagles LT went down with an injury and King took the field.

I'm betting that a houndstooth Snuggy would make somebody a lot of money.

I also saw where Antoine Odom tore his achilles tendon yesterday. He was having a good season in the NFL...

If I had had Snuggys of any color at my son's baseball game last night, I could have sold them for probably double the regular price. It was cold out there!

It was pretty darn cold Saturday night in Tuscaloosa...You would have made a fortune there too...no matter the color.

OK let's blame it on the wind and cold.

When's the last time Auburn played well before noon?

Last time I can think of was the 32-0 win over Miss State a couple of years ago.

12:16 PM

wasn't the UGA game last year an 11:30 kick?

12:16 PM  
Blogger Sean said...

we're 0-5 in the last 5 games played in daylight of any kind. I say it's time to nip that streak in the bud.

12:17 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

I like the 11:20 start or whatever it is if we are playing a nobody and there are other good games that day...

But Ole Miss/AU should be on at a better time, IMO

12:17 PM

Well, if nothing else, the Kentucky game proved that the Arkansas game can't be blamed on 11:00 kick off. Bring on Johnny Reb at dawn.

We beat Southern Miss last year at 11:30.

Kickoff time doesn't matter...preparation, execution, talent, hard work and sometimes luck win football games no matter what time the kickoff.

I've always been one that thought that a game before noon hurts the home team more than the away team. I know Alabama never seems to play well at that time either.

i thought that too FSJ. sure didn't bother Arkansas, though.

12:24 PM

Well at least those folks with children that live close to Auburn can get home in time for the trick-or-treating. I noticed no mention of ESPN2. Does the SEC Network have first choice before them?

12:29 PM

I'm delighted with the early kickoff, it means I can finally go to a game. And if we lose to LSU the tickets should be cheap.

Already looking for a silver lining.

Todd Observation:

Last year when Todd's shoulder was hurt, he was continuously flexing his shoulder when he was on the field. As an old QB & Pitcher, I knew that was a sign that his shoulder/arm was hurting or at least not comfortable. I have not seen him flex that shoulder on the field this year until Sat. nite against UK. That makes me begin to question his shoulder. Still has some zip on the ball but something may not feel right. I do think the wind had some play into the deep balls early in the game.

Oh, OK FSJ. It's just that you are a bammer hanging out at HABOTN, so it just seemed that you had a history of cheating on your program at least. Didn't know if that tendency was manifested elsewhere.

Jet is resting comfortably in an undisclosed Montgomery area hospital after collapsing at approximately 1 p.m.

Montgomery firemedics reported a call to the RSA Tower, where Jet's office is located.

Upon arrival, Jet was semi-conscious and mumbling "RK wanted Kodi" repeatedly. He slipped into unconsciousness and was transported to a hospital, where he subsequently regained consciousness.

1:45 PM

PDWT - Fall Ball. It runs from mid-September - early November. The late season games and practices sometimes involve frostbite, just like the early season in spring baseball. By the way, you have just inspired me to install WT pockets in the Snuggies that I am going to be marketing at the ballpark!

Give it to Kodi. Jet's got a dead arm.

Jay,

1. I assume Mike McNeil is not coming back this year

2. Does Aaron Savage even try for a extra year of eligibility?

3. Who do you think the best walk on is this year?

4. So much has been discussed of Eltoro Freeman not adjusting well, what about Demond Washington and Nick Fairley, two other juco players, your thoughts on them?

5. Did Antonio Coleman make a mistake coming back this year?>

2:24 PM  
Blogger Jet's Doctor said...

Communicating through Morse Code by blinking, Jet has indicated that, should he not recover, he is leaving is stereo to Michael, his AU pins to Scottie. To FSJ, he's leaving his "HabitUAl Offender" pin. Having said that, he is expected to make a full recovery unless RK endorses Kodi as the new quarterback.

Do I put Jet out of his misery and endorse Kodi, but by doing that I go against my best instincts as to what is best for Auburn football?

or

Do I go with my instincts and hope Todd can snap out of it or if not Caudle/Trotter can get the job done and just live with Jet being on here with his tomfoolery and lies.

Tough decisions on my part.

2:30 PM  
Blogger michael said...

There is a stereo in play for me, rk. So just try to focus on how smoothly Kodi ran the wildcat this last weekend. And remember how many stars he had coming out of high school? Think of the potential! And think what it would do for team chemistry if Kodi, the same guy who made the preseason speech that helped us go 5-0, all of a sudden became the QB who helped turn this season around. ESPN would give us endless media coverage that would help raise the profile of Auburn and maybe land some huge recruits.

So rk: vote Kodi!!!

2:34 PM  
Blogger Norm said...

While in theory I support you Michael, and RK, I understand your conundrum. You all know how I feel about Jet - his untimely demise is my fondest wish. I do think I should make you aware of this film. To my knowledge, aside from myself only one other person saw this movie and that person also went to school with Jet and I. So, consider yourselves forewarned:

Can Jet pull this off?

2:41 PM  
Blogger FSJ said...

Jim Nantz has been creepin?

2:51 PM  
Blogger Brother Jet said...

I am sorry RK, Norm, and Michael. My smiling visage is back.

I had hoped to touch the hem of Tebow's garment and be healed.

But he circumcised me instead. Which was painful since I didn't have any anasthesia, and I had been previously circumcised. Either way, it jarred me from my semi-conscious state.

For the record, I have no "AU" pins. I haven't had a stereo in years. But my tomfoolery will endure.

Until you've had an assault rifle with blanks fired at you by a high school classmate, you haven't lived. Or wet yourself in a major league way.

Jet - while I haven't had a blank filled assault rifle fired at me (I have absolutely no doubt who pulled that trigger); M.L., a friend from another high school and I were fired on from a moving vehicle by some ruffians who attended that big school on Carter Hill. I can't verify it, but I believed then and still do that there were no blanks in that gun.

"Nantz testified that early in their marriage his wife would accompany him to all the major sporting events he worked around the country. But that ended and he complained she showed no support for his career.

"In 2004, I got the Man of the Year award from the New York Athletic Club. Rudy Giuliani had been the previous year's winner and it really meant a lot to me," he said, his eyes welling with tears. "My mother flew in from Houston, but Lorrie wasn't there." Nantz said he was given an oil portrait of himself at the dinner, but Lorrie wouldn't let him hang it in their Westport home. "It ended up in a warehouse," he lamented.
....
"Jim often boasted that Caroline (the daughter) had more frequent flyer miles than most adults," she said. However, when their daughter turned 2 and began preschool, Lorrie Nantz said she decided her traveling days were over.
....
The trial over, Lorrie Nantz stood in the lobby of the courthouse sobbing. Stepping from the elevator her husband saw her standing there alone and walked over and put his arms around her.

Together they stood, arms wrapped around each other, sobbing."

3:59 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

The announcers on the U that had the AU game have to had something quotable. They were pretty bad. I do remember Huard using the phrase "Dial up" about 5 or 6 times. Everything the coaches did was "dialed up".

4:01 PM  
Blogger Scott Chocolate said...

Hmmm, "have to had" is not very quotable.

Stuart Scott and Chris Berman are the two worst things to happen to sports announcers as a whole.

Now everyone thinks they have to essentially be a comedy skit.

One of the dumbest things said by a play by play announcer ever!!

4:16 PM

I think Mark Jones' "he was pushed out of bounds at the 84 yard line" during the West Virginia game is the best of the year so far.

4:20 PM

Patrick and Olberman were my favorite Sportscenter duo, but I Mayne, Van Pelt and Kilbourne were all good.

4:20 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I liked he and Danielson tried to move on and pretend it didn't happen. I can imagine the glance Gary shot Verne when he said that.

I vote for Gus Johnson to eventually replace Verne. That guy brings it every day of the week. Doesn't have a lot of college football gravitas, but I'll let it slide.

4:21 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

A few of the current SC guys are good (I like the LA crew), Van Pelt is great, but I liked ESPN back in the mid to late 90s before it became a caricature of itself.

Sportscenter commercials never get old, though.

Blogger WarEagleRK said...

Gus Johnson sometimes gets a bit too excited, but he is good.

He also does MMA on CBS.

4:24 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Gus gets way too excited, but it never gets old. He called that Denver Broncos-Cincinnati Bengals game earlier this year where the Broncos won on the long, tipped pass, so you can imagine the gusto with which he deliverd his commentary.

Here's the call.

4:28 PM

After Verne's miscue on Saturday -- and I'm a big fan -- I'm beginning to think he might have one foot in the gravitas.

Per al.com ... Jon Solomon blog ... SEC fesses up on unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Arkansas ... dodges on the pass interference calls.

4:33 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Both were bad and it assumes alot to think Arkansas wins regardless, but the unsportsmanlike personal foul was as worse, if not more, than the A.J. Green/Charles Scott. The guy was playing football. The play wasn't over, some guy tried to block him and he did his job and just shed the block.

The PI call was bad too, but PI calls are blown every game.

I still hear Keith Jackson and Frank Broyles covering the Iron Bowl in the 80's.

I always considered Jackson a closet Bama fan. Am I just paranoid?

Ron Franklin is a classic college football voice buried by ESPN. SEC night games aren't the same without him. Tragic.

5:34 PM

Keith Jackson loved the Bear, no doubt. But he was fair.

Keith and Frank were the greatest pair ever. It sounded like two old guys on the porch talkin' football.

Whoa, Nellie.

5:45 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I have to say, I loved Franklin and Gottfired on Saturday nights in the fall on ESPN. But I'm warming pretty well to Blackledge and Nessler together. I've always like Blackledge, but wasn't crazy about Mike Patrick, but I like Nessy.

He lives in Atlanta, has called SEC basketball games for years. He gets it when it comes to the SEC.

5:49 PM

Nessler and Blackledge are good. Getting Griese and MacGuire away from Nessler was a good thing.

AUFan - I agree; I really like Ron Franklin. I wish he was paired with Todd Blackledge in prime time.

LOL....Tennessee supposedly requested to wear orange jerseys this weekend and Saban told them no..

I didn't even know that you could do that...

7:37 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

I've always wanted to tell LSU they can't wear white at home and make them wear purple so we could wear our whites. I don't understand why they get to change the rules.

7:43 PM

Mind games!!

FSJ, nice long interview with Nick Satan on Low's blog todoay.

Blogger Eddie said...

Would this staff actually burn Rollison's redshirt right now???? That is the rumor of the hour. Shall be interesting to see.

7:46 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I don't mind wearing the home unis at LSU. It never quite looks right, but I realize the white jerseys are a big part of the LSU legacy, so I don't begrudge them for doing what they do.

7:46 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Surely not bro.

7:47 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Home team has the choice of color or white.

7:47 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Nova- Home team does not have the choice, they have to have approval from the away team to wear white.

7:49 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I could see them burning the redshirt if they are giving up on this season and want him experienced for next.

7:50 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Bro- That facebook quote is correct and it seems to be gaining ground. I'm curious to see.

7:50 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Eddie,
I thought that was right, but I didn't want to say because I wasn't for sure.

7:50 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Nova- When you say giving up on Season....what is there left to play for than maybe a little bit better bowl?

7:51 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

Are y'all hearing anything about Rollison aside from his facebook quote?

7:51 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

How's West Virginia? How's the weather?

7:51 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

Isn't that all there ever is to play for? That and pride.

7:53 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Maybe it's misdirection from Tyrik for LSU. :)

If it's legit, then the curtain is closing on the Chris Todd era and they have absolutely no confidence in Caudle or Trotter to see out the year.

Hopefully it's a rouse.

7:53 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

West Virginia is.....cold. Always seems to be that way when I come up here.

Rollison playing this season has pluses and negatives. It means they don't have any confidence in Chris Todd and also do not want to have a QB controversy heading into Spring Practice meaning they want Tyrik to be the guy next season and don't want to risk there being another long drawn out affair. It also means the believe the other QB's on the roster that are not freshman suck in their opinion. We shall see. The fact that Tyrik posted this means that it didn't come from the coaches. Could Tyrik be playing a rouse, yes, but that would be giving Tyrik way more credit than he probably deserves. I think he is probably getting a big look right now at the QB spot. Chizik would never say that he intended to RS Rollison. He said it looked to be heading that way, but never came out and said that he was indeed being redshirted meaning he was always willing to play this card if necessary, IMO.

Burning Rollison's redshirt at this point would be insane. Surely they won't. If they do, I will start vomiting Coosa-aid and it will take a long time to get it out of my system.

8:00 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I agree Coosa. Burning his redshirt now, seven games in, essentially means he'll have less than a three and a half year college career.

I'm not so sure I wouldn't rather just go 6-6.

8:03 PM  
Blogger diggerforAu said...

The only way Rollison sees action this year is if Todd's shoulder is hurt again.

8:04 PM  
Blogger cincytiger said...

But wouldn't it make sense to burn his redshirt and let him get some good game time experience this year? So what if he has a full four years but has to spend the first half of next year getting experience. I'm no expert by a long shot, but I do see some advantages to going ahead and starting him now.

8:05 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I think they wanted Tyrik in the fall but he just didn't have time to get up to speed.

If he is as advertised there may not be any advantage to saving the redshirt. Players with pro potential tend to leave early. The philosophy seems to be to use em while you've got em.

8:06 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

Nova- I don't think it was because Tyrik wasn't so much up to speed as it was how good Chris Todd had looked in practice. The staff thought they could win this season with Todd. If Todd had not looked good, I think Tyrik would have been the starter by now. That's just my opinion. You could be right.

8:08 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Even if he plays now, he'll still be on a learning curve next year. I don't think five or six games means he'll be good to go next year. Jordan Jefferson at LSU is proof of that (and I'm sure now that I've said that, he'll burn us big time this week).

8:09 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I'm not campaigning for Rollison, I just don't see burning the redshirt as a huge problem.

I doubt we'll win many more with a freshman QB, but I have little confidence we'll win many more as it is now.

8:10 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I'm not a coach, though. If coaches thinks it benefits us in the short-term and long term, who am I to argue. In Gus (and Chiz) I trust. I guess we'll learn a good bit more tomorrow and see if this rumor has some legs.

Be interesting to see what JayG or wtc had to say about this.

8:12 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

He'd be 5 (or 6) games further on learning curve and would have gone up against some of the toughest teams in the SEC.

They could also see if he's really who they want or if they need to open the competition in the spring.

8:15 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I agree on that. I trust Chiz and Gus on this one.

8:16 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Are we speculating because of a facebook status, or is there more evidence? If Todd is injured, I don't mind burning his redshirt. Playing time. That's what these kids want. Losing does not help recruitment. Doing what you have to do to win, or plan for the future, does.

8:17 PM  
Blogger NoVaTiger said...

I don't know if there is anything more to the rumor than the facebook thing. It's interesting to speculate on though.

8:21 PM  
Blogger WarEagleRK said...

If this coaching staff recruits like they seem like they will be able to, then in 3 years we'll have someone there to replace Rollison...so if he helps us now more than the others, play him.

8:21 PM  
Blogger Kathy said...

Exactly WERK!

8:22 PM  
Blogger Eddie said...

I agree with RK and my Bro meaning that if Gus and Chizik think he helps, then play him, if not, keep him in the garage till next season.


Rollison Express back on track???? We shall see.....

We want what's best for the team Storm. Is that Todd, Rollison, Caudle, Trotter or Burns?

Todd is definitely having a problem whether it's in his arm or his head.

All I know is it sucks to sit there in the cold and think SHIT here we go again!!!!!
